“Island Time” is a state of mind. You might be stuck in the middle of land-locked Kansas, buried in snow in Chicago, or caught up in the rat-race in the place you call home–we can all capture the Island Time feeling no matter where we are. All you have to do is find that inspirational “trigger” that takes you to your St. Somewhere. It could be a specific rum drink, a photo of a past vacation, or a toe tapping song with coastal blue water lyrics. Inspiration takes many forms.

For me that “trigger” is the sweet sweet salt life sound. Music.

A new album by Jake and the Half Conched Band called, “Nothin’ But Sun” is the perfect example of instant transportation to the Island State of Mind.

I’ve been in a big fan of Jake and the Half Conched Band for a long time. The group and lead singer Jake Thomas are Nashville based, but the songs are written about the Gulf coast, Caribbean hideaways, love of the sea, and strong drinks. All Castaways trademarks!

“Nothin’ But Sun” will make a fantastic addition to your Beach Playlist, it’s the perfect “trigger” for that Island State of Mind escape. You can download the “Nothin’ But Sun” album here on iTunes.

Here are a few of my favorite songs from Nothin’ But Sun.

Island Girl – Jake and the Half Conched Band

Gone – Jake and the Half Conched Band

Busted in Jamaica – Jake and the Half Conched Band

Tequila Happy – Jake and the Half Conched Band

Let me know what you think of the new “Nothin’ But Sun” album. I hope you like it as much as I do!
